The place I am in is such a place where it is so quiet that if you really listen you can almost hear people’s thoughts and prays. And if you listen really extremely carefully you could almost tell what have brought them here; whether something to be thankful, or they are in despair. I have this theory that by just observing the behavior of the different people – how they enter the church, their walk, the expression on their faces and their hands. But maybe the most you can tell about a person is by their faces – some come in with a hope in their eyes that could hardly be found anywhere, others filled with despair. May be some of them have come here seeking for comfort and help, or the ones who have decided that this is the thing that could change their day or just to come and light a candle for their families and friends. The spark in each person’s eyes is different.
The other interesting thing that happened was that in this peaceful atmosphere two women entered and started talking in loud voice, laughing and discussion some show they saw the previous night and how they were so insulted because the guest in the show said that the majority of people who come from small towns do not behave in the proper way in public facilities and institutions such as churches (here I thought that should be interesting). Basically the entire discussion was concentrated in saying mean things about the guest of the show, and how they (the two women) were a perfect example of how people from small towns are even more ‘sophisticated’ than everybody else. That makes me wonder how diverse and most of all differently people see the world, and how your social and cultural background on the first place, and secondly your personal choice can alter the way you perceive the things that happen around you. church
